Description: In survey drawing, distances are represented by text and not by dimensions as in mechanical drawings. Using MTP command, text representing the distance between two points can be measured easily.Procedure:
Description: Measure command is one of the useful CAD commands. When working on big drawing if you have to measure many lines, then the measure command should be repeated multiple times. However, using ‘MCR’ command measure command can be run on multiple lines in one go.Procedure:
Menu: Put Circle around Text (CIT)Functionality: To put circle around text.
Description: This option is used to put circle around selected texts.Procedure:
Menu: Put Box around Text (BXT)Functionality: To put box around text.
Description: This option is used to put box around selected texts.Procedure:
Menu: Show entities of the specified colour (CLR)Functionality: To show the entities of specified color.
Description: In CAD it is always better to have all the entities color same as the layer color. However, for practical reasons entity color might be different for some set of entities in the drawing. For quality purpose or for giving pen assignments during plotting, having a clear knowledge of various colors in the drawing is better. This can be done by viewing entities in different colors separately. Using ‘CLR’ command you can see the entities of different color.Procedure:
Menu: Trim Around Selected Text (TRIMT)Functionality: To trim around the selected text and make it clear to view.
Description: Using the trim around selected texts option you can trim texts to avoid overlapping of text on other entities. One common example where this can be used is when there are texts on the contour lines in a drawing, if text labels are overlapping the contour line, and then reading the contour lines becomes difficult. Using ‘TRIMT’ command, lines around the text can be trimmed.Procedure:
ESurvey Lisps creates temporary files in Temporary directory set. These don’t have much significance after which particular functions get executed. However, ESurvey range of products doesn’t delete the files automatically. If you wish to quickly access the directory you may use ‘ETD’ command. It opens up temporary folder (C:\ESurvey\Temp). Using ‘DTC’ command you can delete the content in Temporary directory.8. DELETE TEMPORARY DIRECTORY CONTENTS (DTC)
